Buma Inbar has dedicated himself to helping others for the last 22 years, since his son Yotam was killed on active duty in Lebanon while serving in the IDF. He works with immigrants to Israel from Ethiopia, with ultra-Orthodox communities, and most particularly – with Palestinians seeking medical care in Israel. He’s a “one stop shop”, arranging everything: entry permits, hospitalization, medical treatment, accommodation and food for accompanying family members – and even livelihood for families that lose their breadwinner to illness. He also organizes Israeli-Palestinian sports events, visits for Palestinian children to beaches and parks in Israel, and clears mines in the Jordan valley.
Up to 1995, Buma was a sales manager. He served in the elite Paratroop Brigade of the IDF, and fought with distinction in the Six-Day War.
